Summary

I modified the Small Dice Tower by scaling it down to 80% of original size and changing the opening to have a pointed arch. This removes the need for any supports to print the opening. I also scaled down the ramps slightly to make sure they slide through the slots even when the slots print messily (as they tend to do due to their angle).

Funnel gif

Update: I've added a funnel for the more enthusiastic dice throwers out there. The funnel sits on top and can be printed separately. It needs no supports and can be printed at 100% infill as it is just a thin shell. Funnel inspired by Buchnerb's remix here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1365529

Update 2: The latest file (tower_and_funnel_combined.stl) has the funnel integrated into the tower model, and an improved ramp which prevents the dice from bouncing back out of the tray - keeping them at the front where they're easier to see. I recommend printing this version.

Hero Quest - no more questions - like!

May i ask where to get these dice?
The size seems bigger than the standard 16mm dice and has round corner.

The red ones are Chessex 16mm dice, bought in a box of 12. The wooden ones are from Heroquest.

Thank you for a great model! This is going to fit perfectly behind my DM screen :)

is this large enough for a d20?

Yes, it can fit 2 d20s at once.

I'm not sure how you guys print this, but the slits for the 2 bounce slabs will for sure need support becaus its more then 75 degree overhang.... i trid without and it looks horrible.

Take a look at the first two photos - those are printed without support. Yes it's a little rough on the top edge, but the ramps fit in no problem. Try printing slower or increase your fan speed if the overhangs aren't working for you.

What is the game you are using as a background to roll on? It looks to be similar to Hero Quest, as you have such dice in your image, but certainly doesn't belong to the 1990 MB game.

The Hero Quest dice caught my eye as well.
